On Oct. 11, RaceTrac announced that it expanded E15 sales to four locations in Florida, giving consumers access to a higher biofuel blend. RaceTrac recently joined a list of major retailers as part of the Prime the Pump initiative, which works in collaboration with Growth Energy to expand consumer choice for higher blends of ethanol, like E15, to Americans across the nation. Minnoco, Sheetz, Kum & Go, Thorntons, Cenex, Protec and Murphy USA are among the members of the Prime the Pump coalition.
“We are excited that RaceTrac, in addition to the other members of our retail family, is giving more customers the choice to switch to a 21st century fuel that is good for the environment, good for their cars and good for their wallets,” said Emily Skor, Growth Energy CEO. “Consumer demand for E15 is on the rise thanks to its lower price point and environmental benefits and RaceTrac is another example of a retailer committed to providing their customers with the best fueling options.”
E15 is a high performance fuel that contains 5% more ethanol than the regular gasoline and it is approved for use in any car made in 2001 and newer. Consumers may go to www.GetEthanol.com to find retail stores that offer E15.
Prime the Pump is a 501 (c) 6 organization dedicated to helping build the infrastructure and distribution of higher ethanol blends throughout the United States.
